2nd Artistic Gymnastics Meeting Concludes
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The Canadian women and Brazilian men continued their dominance Sunday as the 2nd Artistic Gymnastics Meeting concluded in São Bernardo, Brazil.

The competition featured female gymnasts from Brazil, Canada and South Korea, and male gymnasts from Argentina, Canada, Colombia, France, Portugal and Venezuela.

After winning the team and all-around titles Saturday, the Canadian women swept the apparatus finals Sunday. Newcomer Ellie Black, who tumbled a thrilling 2 1/2 twist to triple twist mount on floor exercise, won vault and beam titles. Brittany Rogers won the uneveen bars title over all-around champion Kristina Vaculik, while Talia Chiarelli won floor exercise.

Three-time Brazilian Olympian Daniele Hypolito settled for a share of the balance beam title. After a three-year absence, 2008 Olympian Lais Souza returned and took second on vault.

The Brazilian men won half the apparatus titles. World silver medalist Arthur Zanetti — one of three Olympic qualifiers for the Brazilian men — won titles on floor exercise and still rings. All-around champion Pericles Silva won high bar.

Guests grabbed the remaining titles: Portugal's Bernardo Graça (pommel horse), France's Kevin Dupuis vault) and 2008 Colombian Olympian Jorge Hugo Giraldo (parallel bars) all left São Bernardo with gold medals.
